At least 13 people were killed and nearly 80 wounded in fierce clashes Friday between forces loyal to the UN-backed unity government and rival militiamen, the health ministry said.

A security official for the Government of National Accord separately gave a toll of 23 loyalist forces killed and 29 wounded, but medical sources were not immediately available to confirm those figures.
